Apple’s Steve Jobs Was a Pioneer in Education Technology
10/06/2011 – Steve Jobs, whose creativity and creations such as the Macintosh computers, iPhones, and iPads have influenced more than three decades of students and teachers, died Wednesday after a battle with cancer. He was 56.
The consumer electronics and computer hardware and software company that Jobs co-founded in 1976, Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple, has long held devotees within the world of education. It remained relevant in schools as the early Apple I and II’s developed into subsequent lines of desktop computers, laptops, and mobile devices that changed both knowledge sharing and knowledge consumption for students and adults alike.
